Optical Waveguide Modes: Polarization, Coupling and Symmetry

by: Richard J. Black, Langis Gagnon


Abstract: Comprehensive coverage of optical waveguide modes Optical Waveguide Modes covers the models of single- and few- mode optical waveguides with an emphasis on single- and multi-core optical fibers and couplers including a large range of geometries and anisotropies. This book covers the in-depth physics and theory behind optical waveguide modes (group theory) in both single and multiple modes, with a focus on the polarization, coupling and symmetry of optical waves. Controlling the mode is critical to retaining the fidelity of each light pulse which carries various communication data. This is an essential resource for optical waveguide and fiber optic designers.
